    Naa, I’d leave the rest of the fans alone. Really good airflow at stock setup. Not worth moving one fan for the sake of an exhaust. Get an extra fan later. Don’t stress over it :)

    T Agreed. At a minimum it should keep CPU heat from rising up to the PSU compartment.

    Tbh I don’t think it would make that much of a difference as the case airflow would just push it out anyway. I just put my fan in because it was just sitting there. Might as well. The Nhd 15 fan would push it out regardless as the rear case perforations are massive.

    t’s a couple of the Phanteks NEON digital rgb strips chained together. Really bendy and diffused. I find them more consistent and subtle than the standard led strips. I especially like the neon vibes it can do =)

    Ryzen 5900X overclocking help

    I also setup a WHEA error custom view in Eventviewer to see which core was acting funky during any crash. Really helped in identifying which specific core needed adjusting. Also used CTR 2.1 to rank the cores in terms of quality, and then adjusted accordingly (I didn’t use its auto oc feature...

    How stable is it? Mine is stable on all of the stress testing CB23 etc, but it used to take a dump at idle every now and then. Sorted it out by adjusting the PBO2 settings once I found out which cores were crap. Seems to have worked now….. well, still observing.

    EVGA 1000 P2 PSU @ EVGA $169.99, usually $329

    I asked in the EVGA forums. An Evga tech responded cryptically with “ Same OEM for all of them”……whatever that means without specifics. So I can only guess that means SS if the G6 it’s made by SS.

    EVGA 1000 P2 PSU @ EVGA $169.99, usually $329

    The “5” generations were apparently by FSP. The new “6” are by Seasonic. I’m just hoping that also applies to the P2 if there aren’t by SF anymore.

    I see. Do you know who?

    EVGA 1000 P2 PSU @ EVGA $169.99, usually $329

    I think these are by Seasonic now. From what I’ve gleaned. But you never know. Either way it’s a full bridge LLC unit so I’m happy =)

    Better to have and not need it I day, especially at a good price! This deal is better than anything that has on Black Friday or “cyber Monday”. Their newer models are also on discount :)

    Going for $169.99. Usually $329. Picked one up for myself.

    EVGA Supernova P5 1000? Any thoughts before I pull the trigger?

    Will do. Still a good unit if it’s by Seasonic so I’m happy =D

    EVGA Supernova P5 1000? Any thoughts before I pull the trigger?

    Just thought I'd post an update. Returned the unit and bought a P2 unit directly from EVGA that is on flash sale for $169. Works out to be cheaper and supposedly a better unit. Fortunate I suppose. Anyone know makes the 2021 built units? FSP probably?

    How often do you replace power supply?

    Still using my CorsairAX850 from 2011. I think it’s a seasonic make. They seem to be the psu standard.

    EVGA Supernova P5 1000? Any thoughts before I pull the trigger?

    Thanks! Do you happen to know who the oem of Evga is at the moment? Or should I just go and get a seasonic unit? Don’t really want a potential PSU issue down the road. Cheers!

    EVGA Supernova P5 1000? Any thoughts before I pull the trigger?

    Just thought I'd ask about it before I get it. Any thoughts? Cant really find many reviews of the unit and never had a EVGA unit before. I'm only considering for the price, otherwise id be going for a Corsair HX1000 unit from Amazon. EVGA Supernova P5 1000 Platinum @newegg for $189 ($169 after...

    Which would you go for?

    Yeah, I think I'm going to go for the Asus board. Just more confident in the brand and long term support.

    Which would you go for?

    I've whittled down my choices to two preferred options of x570 boards I'm interested in. Which would you go for? Which is the pecking order in terms of positioning do you think? (they seem to be in the same price bracket so more than capable). Going to throw a 5900x, RTX 3080 FE and 32GB of...

    How is the RGB quality/look in person? Still deciding on the black/grey with rgb vs non rgb. Def the case I’m getting though with a NHD-15 Chromax. Nice looking beasty!

    Ryzen 9 re-pricing?

    I was thinking about doing that too. However, I decided to jump on it as I’m coming from a Skylake 6700k so anything would be a huge upgrade at that point! To be honest, I was focused on getting a RTX 3080FE for most of the time, which fortunately happened :)

    Ryzen 9 re-pricing?

    They were selling when I grabbed my 5900x @ Amazon for $499 in August. I remember the 5800x being readily available wherever I looked. The 5900x/5950x was patchy and overpriced at best. My micro center has the 5900x for the same price now. Must be due to a larger supply and because of newer...

    Ryzen 9 re-pricing?

    …..will be interesting to see how the v-cache zen3 stuff will effect things. Will probably be priced around $550 if performance > 12700K? Current 5900x’s down to $450 or less? Zen 4 can’t come soon enough to stir things up even more! This competition is making me happy :)

    Ryzen 9 re-pricing?

    agreed. if they are still selling like hotcakes, why would they change anything? I am curious as to what people think the price "should" be in regards to a performance comparison though. (ignoring other market variables such as the Pandemic/supply/distribution etc & "imagining" a perfect...

    Ryzen 9 re-pricing?

    Now that Intel has released its new stuff, what do you guys think, if at all, Ryzen prices should be adjusted to reflect the new competitors? I have a 5900x on hand that I paid $499.99 (550 with tax) from Amazon in August that I'm building a system around. I've already seen the 5600x and 5800x...

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master won't power on - (temporary) solution

    Hmmm. I was going to pull the trigger on getting this board given it’s good reviews, but this has me doubting things. Anyone know us the “s” has the same problem? I think I may stick to what I know if this one has probs. Bummer :(

    Do you even want to buy a CPU right now?

    Will do! I’m also considering a gigabyte x570s aorus master. Something beefy as socket am4 is basically EOL.

    Snagged a 5900x from Amazon when they were going for $499. Should last for 5-6 yrs I hope. Just scoping for a motherboard now..

    That might be down to the color science of Apple. The shots always seem bland, but supposedly “accurate”….whatever that means in todays AI manipulated images lol.
